24494728 story Google Apps Engine Gets SQL 66 Posted by Soulskill on Friday October 07, 2011 @02:28PM from the rows-and-columns dept. oker writes "Google has finally added SQL to its cloud platform offering, Apps Engine. Until now, developers had to use the Datastore service, which provides a vendor lock-in threat and isn't supported by most existing software and libraries. The SQL service should definitely improve Apps Engine adoption. It is currently in limited preview mode."
